Football vs HIV/AIDS Tour 2012: PFA in South Africa - 24.07.12

Footballers headed south to work with African young people

Early in the summer of 2012 the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) visited South Africa with the Premier League as part of the 'Football vs HIV/AIDS Tour 2012'. Here local youths from Masiphumelele pose with representatives from the PFA/Premier League in T-shirts designed and produced by HIVsport (funded by EuropeAid through our Millenium Development Goals Realisation Project).

A closer look at the T-shirt design

Designers based the final typographics on football pitch markings and placed HIVsport's 'Badge of Hope' on the front side of the shirt. The final shirt also included the European flag on the reverse side.

 The 'Badge of Hope'

HIVsport uses the 'Badge of Hope' to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS and promote sexual health and wellbeing in sport.

HIVsport works in partnership with professional sporting associations, such as the PFA to:

  • Create through sport, greater public awareness of the global epidemic of HIVand AIDS
  • Provide education and training to people in all roles in sport around HIV and sexual health
  • Support sports-related HIV and sexual health education projects.

 The Paralympics is also an opportunity to challenge stereotyped views and medical and charitable model based thinking about people living with disabilities. Tonight, disabled athletes from across the globe come together to demonstrate again that we are fully able and capable. The Paralympics will showcase our resourcefulness, determination, spirit, courage and integrity.

This project was funded by the European Union.
